Capitals a win away from Stanley Cup after beating Golden Knights


Ryan Reaves #75 of Vegas Golden Knights and Brooks Orpik #44 of Washington Capitals mix it up during third period in Game 3 of 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Final at Capital One Arena on June 2, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The Capitals appeared to be doing in Game 4 Monday night in Washington what they did against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Games 6 and 7 of the Eastern Conference championship. The only team in National Hockey League history to come back from a 3-1 deficit in a final to hoist the Cup was the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, who won four straight after losing the first three games to the Detroit Red Wings.

I think you can make the argument that Marchessault has been Vegas' best player and maybe the best player on the ice (no player has generated more unsafe shots than him on either side), but on the other end of the spectrum is their big goal-scorer in William Karlsson.

As the face of the franchise and its backbone on the ice, Fleury did just about everything to lead the expansion Golden Knights to the Cup Final with a.947 save percentage that made him the playoff MVP front-runner.

According to Ticket IQ, the cheapest Game 4 tickets are up nearly $400 from last week. They were less aggressive on the forecheck, and had a series-high 26 shots blocked by Capitals. "People don't believe we can do stuff that we've done". We didn't have enough shots. "If we don't step up our game, the same result is going to happen [Monday] night".

"We know they're going to keep pushing forward", Holtby said.

He snuck down to the 100 section during the last minutes of Game 3 on Saturday, and tossed the crab over the glass.

These kinds of talks are best kept behind closed doors until the playoffs are over and there are no more series to jinx. But they were only down 1-0 to the Winnipeg Jets. "I think everybody saw it". "We have a good bunch of character guys in this room. That's a huge part of why we're having success defensively because it's all through our lineup". "We have to be better and every line has to be better".

Brooks Orpik went 824 days between goals before scoring the victor in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Washington Capitals are 20 minutes away from a commanding 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights.

"It probably changes the game", Neal said.

But that first chance was a major blown opportunity for Vegas, especially because it cost them an opportunity to seize early momentum and get a little confidence back after two straight losses. For us, it's unacceptable. "It shows in his game, and it shows in the effect that it has on the rest of us". That trio combined for 92 goals in the regular season, but they have one goal in the series.

"We didn't put them in".

Vegas has lost two straight for the first time in nearly two months. This season, the Knights have managed to unite the community and made hockey fans around the country take notice. Shea's a 22-year-old kid who I love. It looked as if Tatar would replace struggling winger David Perron in Game 4, though Gallant on Monday refused to confirm that scratch and alluded to at least one other possible move.

Evgeny Kuznetsov smiled about getting four assists.

Ovechkin has been setting the tone for the Capitals since their first-round comeback victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. He slipped the shot past Fleury to seal the game 3-1. "It was a bit of the same story with Tuch after the second match".
